The city of Chelan, located on the edge of Lake Chelan, is a popular place for vacationers who want to enjoy the outdoors. There are numerous different kinds of activities for a variety of different interests available in and around the city. Now that Spring is finally upon us and Summer right around the corner, this valley city in Washington is a good vacation spot to keep in mind.
One of the more popular reasons to visit Chelan is the abundance of wineries and orchards nearby. Washington is well known for having one of the best wine regions and the areas near Chelan are no exception. There are over 15 wineries all located within just a 20-minute drive of the city center, and even more are just short drives beyond that point. There are also about the same number of orchards scattered around the area. This means that everyone from wine lovers to orchard enthusiasts will be able to find entertainment in the Chelan area.
Of course, with Lake Chelan nearby you also have a world of water related activities to take part in. From paddle boarding to building sandcastles on the beach (which you can never be too old for), it will be difficult to get bored with what the 55.5-mile-long lake offers. You can even take a trip up to Stehekin at the lake’s head. There are no roads leading to Stehekin, making the lakefront area of trees and mountains an almost ideal escape from the modern world.
We can’t forget to include the more traditional outdoor activities, either. For anyone that enjoys getting outside and getting active, numerous hiking trails, bike trails, horseback riding trails and more can be found cutting through the beautiful scenery around Chelan. You might want to consider spending a few days exploring, making memories, and enjoying nature in the valley area.
